We received three grants in November of 2012 from generous organizations. The grants are the Education Inititive from the Norman L. and Dorothy A. Sharfman Fund of Greater Worcester Community Foundation, the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education's After School and Out-Of-School Time Quality Grant, and one from the Staples Foundation.
We also had a successful fall festival, Thanksgiving celebration, and trip to Assumption College with students and parents this year.
